    About Us

    Pinellas County Economic Development (PCED) works with local businesses to encourage expansion and seeks to attract new companies with high-wage careers to Pinellas. Through investment tools, professional courses and business counseling sessions, trade missions to open new markets, as well as local, regional and statewide partnerships, PCED fosters a pro-business climate in Pinellas County, Florida.

    Anchored by the urban markets of Clearwater and St. Petersburg, Pinellas has the second largest base of manufacturing employment in Florida. Fortune 500 technology manufacturers Jabil Circuit and Tech Data are headquartered here. Pinellas has diverse, yet symbiotic, industry clusters, including aviation/aerospace; defense/national security; medical technologies; business and financial services; and information technology. An extensive network of suppliers, service-providers and business associations support operations in these sectors. Relocating businesses can move to Pinellas and expect to begin growing immediately.

    The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) helps entrepreneurs and established businesses develop through personalized business consulting and growth planning. Funding is critical, and the SBDC explains the requirements necessary to secure an SBA loan. Federal contracts are a large part of the economy in Tampa Bay, and our experts teach local companies how to compete successfully for these opportunities.
